'Novak Djokovic'S Obviously Proven That...', Says Former Star

‘Novak Djokovic has obviously shown that…’, says former star

«The main reason I’m here in Australia is the Australian Open,» Novak Djokovic said at a press conference after winning the title in Adelaide, the first of the new season. The Serbian player began his preparation for the first round of the Slam in Adelaide, a return to Melbourne Park after the stormy events of last year.

If at this point the presence of the current champion is already certain (taking into account that last year he could not defend his title), there are doubts about other dates prior to the Slam stage. At the press conference, Novak Djokovic was asked about his plans for the Australian Open and whether these plans include Nick Kyrgios.

«Now we have to see. The week is long. Luckily, I will have time to recover. It has been a long five weeks of pre-season and then arriving in Australia. I spent almost two weeks in Adelaide training hard, with many hours.» spent on the field.

I’m happy with how I’m playing, how I feel. Now it’s really a set-up, it’s about adapting to the conditions. In Melbourne they are slightly different. Take it easy because this week has been very intense,» said the former world number one.

It seems, therefore, that Djokovic has no other goal than to return to the Australian Open, where he has won nine times, no one like him in the Australian city. That is why his response to the question of whether he would have an opportunity to see him in Kooyong was emphatic: “No, I am not going to play in Kooyong.

I’ll be at Melbourne Park, yes.» The Kooyong Classic is an exhibition tennis tournament played on concrete. It is held annually in January, the week before the Australian Open, at the Kooyong Stadium in Melbourne (Australia).

McEnroe comments on Djokovic

Novak Djokovic prepared for the Australian Open with a victory at the Adelaide ATP 250 event on Sunday, but tennis legend John McEnroe believes he will harbor some bitterness ahead of the first Grand Slam of 2023.

“I think he can overcome that, he’s obviously shown that he’s been through some incredibly difficult obstacles, none more than the last 12 months of his career. The fact that he was still able to go out there and win Wimbledon and play these smaller events in the fall to get his ranking high enough that he could go and win the event in Turin and the year-end event, and embrace playing and competing, it was just amazing because it would have been so easy to be frustrated and angry.
